No Mail Ballots for Helena School Election


Residents planning to  vote in the spring Helena School District elections this year shouldn’t plan on mailing their ballots in. An e-mail from Kim Harris, District Business Manager, was sent to an incorrect address and was never processed by the Secretary of State’s office, which requires sixty days to review election plans.

The all-mail ballot had previously been challenged by a group of parents, but the decision to return to the traditional permanent absentee ballots and physical polling locations was unrelated to the suit.

The District will announce the decision at the next school board meeting.
